Gave blood today. Walked there through sleet and ice pellets-- my face was pretty well stung by the time I got there, about twenty minutes late, but it's better to lose my footing on foot than in a car. Then triple platelets, yay! I've said before that giving platelets is a good way to spend a blizzard, with the heated chair, the blankets, the calcium-bearing treats, and such. No eagles on the river, though; I guess the ice drove them out of the open even though the cold brings them to the dam and bridges.
